Getting Off on the Green Foot
Eco-friendly must-haves for back-to-school.

Getting the kids back to school is no easy feat. Getting them back to school and keeping it eco-friendly seems impossible, right? Wrong. Purchasing eco-friendly school items is easier and less expensive than ever before. You can even find these items without leaving the comfort of your home.
For your little artists, skip the Crayolas and opt for Nontoxic Prang Fun Pro Soybean Crayons; not only are they good for the environment, they are good for your wallet at just $1.00 for a package of eight. Available at, these eco-friendly crayons are made from 100 percent renewable resources. The website also offers affordable options for eco-friendly colored pencils, highlighters, pens and even the good old standby #2 pencils.
Neither plastic lunchboxes nor paper bags are ideal for carrying lunches. Luckily, a new wave of lunchables from Kids Konserve is now available. Visit to find a selection of stylish, eco-friendly, waste-free, reusable lunch kits. A recycled cotton sack with a cotton sandwich bag, Camelbak bottle, stainless-steel food containers and a stainless-steel bottle are all your child will need to pack a nutritious lunch each and every day.
Now that the kids have all their supplies, they are going to need somewhere to put them. Nature Moms, a blog dedicated to natural family life, suggests the Kidzsack. These mom-invented bags, manufactured in the USA, are made with recycled plastic soda bottles and come in a myriad of styles including jungle, sports, pirate, sea life and more. You can even purchase a custom-designed bag. The best part is that the bags come with washable markers, so your children can color them however they like. If they decide it’s time to change it up, just toss the bag in the washing machine and they can start again from scratch. You can buy these bags at many local stores or online at
Getting your child’s school year off on the green foot is not just great for the environment, but it’s an amazing way to teach your child a little something before they even walk through the school’s front doors. Whether it’s about the art, the economy or even pirates, these eco-friendly items open up discussions about more than just the environment. Plus, they will make you and your kid look really cool come September.
